Tell us about your very first Bikram Yoga class …

My first class was in August 2007 at the Kits studio. My sister, Katie, dragged me along after telling me about the various benefits of Bikram Yoga, and how much it would help my athletic endeavours. Ultimately, I wanted to increase my flexibility and try something different than a traditional workout at the gym.

What was your first impression of Bikram Yoga? Did you love it or loathe it?

I could not believe how hot and humid the class was – I’d never sweated so much in my life. It was, and still is, the most difficult and challenging workout out there. There is such a big cardio component to the yoga, which I did not think would be a factor. I cannot say that I loved it immediately, but I definitely felt amazing after that first class.

What was it that finally got you hooked?

Initially, I wasn’t “hooked.” I think I came back a couple of weeks later. A few months later my sister came back from Teacher Training and I started to go to the studio a bit more often because I wanted to take her class. I would take class sporadically without any real consistency, so I did not really see a great deal of improvement.

Then, about two years ago, I underwent surgery on my elbow from a baseball injury; several months after that I purchased a year unlimited package and started going to Bikram Yoga four to five times a week – or more. Taking class is like hitting the reset button and getting rid of all the junk in your body. I enjoy the euphoric feeling after finishing a class – no matter if it was a good or bad class.

Lately I’ve only been practising a couple of times per week because I injured my knee in the yoga room (lesson learned: be careful and aware of your body, no matter how many classes you’ve taken).

What are some of the benefits you receive from Bikram Yoga?

I find that it keeps me focused and calm outside of the yoga room. I do not really let anything bother me, and try not to sweat the small stuff. I really notice the difference it makes after not going for a few weeks – especially sleep-wise. I think just getting the blood flowing and detoxifying the system really makes me feel healthier overall. I also think that yoga makes you smarter.

What do you find most challenging about practising Bikram Yoga?

I still find the heat overwhelming at times. I think the most challenging thing is that every class is different, and some days are better than others. But as teachers commonly say, “The only bad class is the one you don’t come to.”

I’ve never been a big fan of Eagle Pose but, right now, I’m really liking the backward bend part of Half Moon Pose. It feels good to move the spine in a direction we are not accustomed to … not to mention the head rush that you get with it!

Any New Year’s resolutions for 2012?

Get back to yoga more often, and to be easier on myself.

    That is a very good tip especially to those new to the blogosphere.

    Short but very precise info… Thank you
    for sharing this one. A must read post!

  4. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  5. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  8. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  45. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
